For seventy-nine yeans, EMCC has been a pail of Mississippi's 
history. Now. as it was then, the students and faculty create their 
own histories, histories that interact with each other and become 
intertwined as they are shaped. As we all move in our own 
directions, others arrive to take our places. Students leave for 
their own professions, sometimes returning as faculty who in turn 
teach new students, and the process continues, a repeating 
history. 

When we look at a yearbook, we see our history. No one thinks 
much of it at the time, but in later years, we always look back in 
hopes of remembering how we felt. Those friends we've had, the 
laughter we've shared, and the fun times we've had are all 
captured within these pages - pages that will last a lifetime. 
However, it is not only the happy times we remember. Our 
histories all contain those friends we've lost, the tears we've 
shed, and the hardships we've all faced. Our lives would not be 
complete without the good and the bad. 

As we move on with our lives, we need to be able to reflect on 
ourselves. The ability to be able to see where you have been, 
what you have done, and what you did to get to where you are 
today is a gift that everyone possesses, and we should all use it 
wisely. As the old adage goes: history often repeats itself. We 
learn from our past mistakes in order to make ourselves better 
people. 

<So we ask that you take a moment to reflect on what you have 
done this year, be it good or bad, right or wrong. In this 
moment, whether you are a student or an instructor, realize that 
you will be remembered for what you have done this year. This 
is the legacy that you will leave behind, and it will become a part 
of all of our histories.

Every year, East Mississippi Community College's ocooba campus 
continues to build on its own history. This year is no different. 
(Scooba has seen several hurricanes this year, including Hurricane 
Katrina, whose appearance will be marked down in history as one 
of the worst storms the United (States has seen. EMCC extended 
its enrollment deadline to evacuees from the Mississippi Gulf 
Coast and Louisina, welcoming many new students to the area. 
Due to lack of electricity, the 6eooba Campus was closed for a 
week. Our campus saw several problems, but, as it has done so 
many years in the past, it endured to see its students and faculty 
return to continue following the paths they had set for 
themselves. 

This year, our campus saw a new cafeteria manager, Robert 
Trotter, who brought with him colorful plates and bowls, and a 
wider variety of foods. His efforts have marked him in our minds as 
a part of our personal history. That's not all that's new, however; 
drama instructor Marie Gordon was moved to Aust Hall, where 
plans have been made to create what is being termed a "little 
theater" for her. Each little thing like these contributes to the 
greater historical aspect of EMCC's &ooba campus. 

New people, new faces, new experiences. That is what life, and 
school, are all about. Without them, we have no history that we 
might share with other people, or look back on with old friends or 
rivals. cScooba is no different from any other school in that 
respect, nor will it ever be. So enjoy your time at Scooba Tech - 
it will be a part of your history for as long as you live.

East Mississippi Community College is quite obviously attached to 
the word community. A solid part of its history has been the 
Columbus Air Force 5ase Extension, where civilians and military 
personnel alike can take courses close to home. They oiler a 
variety oi classes through the day, and for those who have little 
time available, night and internet courses are also available. The 
CAFB Extension's easily reachable location makes it a top choice 
not only for military residents, but for local people as well, 
especially high school students wanting to get a few classes out 
of the way before they take the plunge into the next step of 
their history. 

The Education cervices Department shares a building with EMCC's 
CAFB Extension. This department provides counseling and tuition 
assistance to military and Department of Defense civilians. They 
help guide students in the direction they need to go. and EMCC 
provides the classes that will help their students succeed. 

"The relationship we have with EMCC is a great one," said Jose A. 
Dorta, Education Services Officer. "It's beneficial to both the 
community and military personnel. The support we receive from 
the EMCC staff on base - we couldn't ask for anything better." 

Many military students who start off at the CAFB Extension 
complete a degree and travel the world, adding to the history of 
this school as a whole. Because of its importance to the 
community, the EMCC Columbus Air Force Base Extension is 
bound to continue to be a major part of EMCC's history.

The Golden Triangle Campus of East Mississippi Community 
College is centrally located between Lowndes, Oktibbeha, and 
Clay counties in beautiful Mayhew, MS. Originally opened as a 
vocational/technical center in 1968, the Mayhew campus today 
serves as a broad campus offering a wide range of more than 20 
career and technical programs and a full range of academic 
courses for the university transfer student. With an enrollment of 
more than 3200 students, the Golden Triangle Campus is ever 
expanding as the enrollment has grown more than 300% in the 
past 10 years. Several new additions have been added to the 
campus such as a lake in the central part of campus that holds a 
beautiful pavilion for studying and relaxing. A two year old 
academic building has already been outgrown and plans are being 
made to build a Fine Arts and Humanities complex in the near 
future. 

The Golden Triangle Campus also houses the Center for 
Manufacturing and Technology Excellence which includes the 
Workforce Development cervices division. CMTE is a multi-million 
dollar, state of the art training facility that provides regional 
industries with the requisite training to maintain a competitive 
workforce in a 21st century, global economy. CMTE is industry 
driven, industry governed, dedicated to the enhancement of 
technology transfer services and assists both new and existing 
industries by helping to improve productivity. It is the first such 
facility in Mississippi. 

As you can see, EMCC is committed to enhancing the lives of its 
students and the counties it serves by providing the very best 
facilities and instruction available today, while being mindful of 
where it came from and maintaining its place as a part of history.

The Meridian Naval Air Station was formed in 1989. It accomodates 
civilians and military members, offering night classes compressed in 
a short semester format. It seems like a lot of work for most 
students who attend the base, because they work an eight to ten 
hour day before attending classes for an eight week semester. 

Although the majority di the students are military members, and 
Department of Defense (DOD) civilians, other EMCC students 
are welcome to attend the classes at the NAS extension. 
Roderick Granger, a secondary education major on the Scooba 
Campus, took a college algebra course at NA6 and stated, "1 
enjoyed the class. The teacher was nice and understanding, and 
so were the students. If 1 had the opportunity to take another 
class on the base I would. The only thing I didn't like was the 
drive to the class." 

This year. Hurricane Katrina caused MNAS classes to make a 
historical move to a local high school while their classrooms were 
used by evacuees. "During times of crises, East Mississippi 
Community College, in conjunction with faculty, and staff, always 
puts forth their best efforts to keep classes on schedule," said 
Loretta Boswell, EMCC/MNAS Director. "After Hurricane Katrina, 
classes at East Mississippi Community College/Meridian Naval Air 
Station Extension had to be moved off baose. Mr. Dob Calcote, 
principle at Northeast High (School was instrumental in helping us 
achieve this goal. Northeast High School opened its doors to our 
students who were displaced from our Meridian Naval Air Station 
campus. This is East Mississippi Community College and local 
community cooperation at work."

Throughout the college's history, EMCC's Scooba campus has always provided 
extracurricular activites for its students. Beginning in the fall and throughout the 
spring, every student finds some excitement in the following events: the Beauty and 
Beau Pageant, Homecoming, Frosty Follies, and the Pine Grove Festival. Whatever 
interest a student may have, finding it at EMCC will not be hard. 

Most of our fall activities on campus include club meetings, sports, and Homecoming. 
The best social event that most students find fun and enjoyable is the 
Back-to-School Dance. This year our annual Back-to-School Dance, which was held in 
September, consisted of karaoke. Alexis (Smith said, "I think that many of the 
students enjoyed the karaoke more than the dancing and music." 

The most popular sport during the fall is football. There are also other games that 
occur during the fall season such as soccer, baseball, basketball, and Softball. For 
students who do not enjoy playing sports, the Student Center offers card games 
and games of pool. Students can also play basketball and ping pong in the Student 
Activities Building at night. 

One of the most famous events during the fall is Homecoming. During the week of 
this event, there are a host of activities such as dress-up day, an annual Pep Pally, 
and Inflatable Fun Day. Before Christmas, our EMCC choir performs their annual 
Frosty Follies for the surrounding elementary schools. This is an exciting event not 
only for the younger children but also for the students performing. 

The spring time brings on just as many activities as the fall. With basketball season 
continuing and baseball, softball, and golf beginning, there are many games to watch. 
The Pine Grove Festival is the best of all things during spring. The Festival includes 
a choral and band performance, a drama production, guest artists and an art exhibit. 



The most memorable moments at school, besides meeting new friends, are the good 
times that a student has had living on campus. Campus life at EMCC has always 
provided a way of making college not only educational, but fun and enjoyable as 
well.

Living in the dorms is something every 
college student should experience. It is 
a part of college lite, and it can be 
one of the greatest learning 
experiences a student can have. To live 
in the dorm is to play a part in the 
history of East Mississippi Community 
College. 

Living in the dorms gives a student a 
sense of responsibility, adulthood, and 
independence. First, the students must 
realize that they are not at home with 
mom, and there are some things they 
have to do on their own. To a student, 
a dorm room is their new home, and 
home is where most traditions and 
history are made. East Mississippi 



"living iri.the dorms is very 
exciting. It has continuouslv 
encouraged me to be responsible. 
Tins is my first time living 
somewhere other thanJiome, but 
the environment at EM CC makes 
it manageable." Erica Coleman.

has been around for a while, so the 
dorm rooms grow a new strand o( 
history each school term. 

In a dorm room it is expected of a 
student and their roommate to get 
along and be comfortable with each 
other. Dorm life is another way students 
get to meet new people and to 
communicate with the other students. 
Dorm rooms are not big, so students 
must make due with the room they have, 
and some students have to get used to 
sharing a bathroom with three or more 
poeple. "Dorm life is OK. In some cases 
there are three to a room, but in my 
case there are only two. My room is 




UVMu 



very comfortable, and I get along great 
wil h my roommates," said Joshua Scott. 

Dorm lite can be exciting, but it is also 
a time for young adults to expand their 
knowledge of responsibility. Dorm 
rooms are full of late night conversation 
among roommates, three to four hours 
of card playing, and many late night 
pranks. Dorm lite is not only lull ot 
responsibilities but also a little bit of 
fun. Most students don't move away 
from home for the responsibilities, but 
for the tun, and the memories students 
make will become a part of their own 
personal history.

conditioning, and free cable,

The annual Pine Grove Festival is the 
oldest festival of its kind among all 15 
community colleges in the state of 
Mississippi. This rich part of EMCC 
history allows students, faculty and 
members of the community to share 
their talents and enjoy the talents of 
others in a spring time setting on the 
Scooba campus. 

Every year, students show their 
creative talents with art shows, drama 
productions, and musical performances. 
There are also fun events sprinkled 
throughout the festival to enjoy. In 
April, the Festival began with a student 
art show, held in Stennis flail.

On April 14, the Student Activities 
Department held Lions in the Pines. 
Students divided into two groups and 
competed in several games, including 
Tug-A-War, Three-Legged Dace, Drunken 
Baseball, Water Balloon Toss. 
Burst-Your-Bubble. and Sweep-Me-Away. 
This new event ended when students 
grabbed the remaining water balloons 
and began pelting everyone in sight. 

On April 15, the Forestry Department 
held a baked potato lunch and campus 
staff held a rummage sale, both to raise 
money for the Chapel in the Pines. On 
Saturday. April 16, a concert and

barbecue were held beside the 
volleyball court. 

On April 20, the drama department 
invited everyone to visit their classroom 
where they had created masks that 
best represented each member's 
personality. The department also 
offered refreshments for visitors. The 
band and choir offered a concert on 
the back steps of the Administration 
Building. This outdoor setting allowed 
their' music to attract and lure 
passersby.

During the week of homecoming, 
students of the (Scooba Campus were 
able to enjoy the legendary "Inflatable 
Fun Day." The Inflatable Fun Day takes 
place during the middle di homecoming 
week. 

This is a day specifically planned out for 
the students so they can kick back and 
relax. Many students come and watch 
the inflatables being blown up before 
the activities begin. This is a very 
exciting day for students on the EMCC 
(Scooba Campus. 



In the past, some inflatable fun activities 
were things like an obstacle course 
race, boxing rings, sumo wrestling, or 
jousting. This year the students had a 
new variety of activities to choose from. 



They could choose a rock climbing wail, 
surfing, an electronic basketball game, 
and a bungee run. Students really 
seemed to appreciate the new variety 
o^ things to do. (Students take time 
away from their studies to enjoy the 
events offered. 



Joe Nickels, a sophmore, said. "This is 
great! Not only do we get to do new 
things, but we get to have fun while 
doing them." While most of the second 
year students have been to inflatable 
fun before, there are always 
exceptions. 

Sophmore Whitney Collins said, "1 
enjoyed inflatable fun because it was 
exciting and relaxing being with my 
friends. Mostly, I enjoyed it because I 
missed it the year before."

On Oct. 31, 2005 there were many 
exciting things to do around the EMCC 
Scooba campus. The (Society of 
Exceptional (Students, a first year 
organization, conducted a Halloween 
dance to raise money for cancer 
patients. The dance was held at the 
Student Activity Center and admission 
was $1. 

Raven Toy, who is the SES president, 
stated, "The best thing about the dance 
was seeing all of the students who came 
to support our organization." The SES 
not only brought some fun to the 
Scooba campus, but it also raised 
$146.00 




DJ's H2 and Miller boy said "We came 
here to have fun and not to play lame 
music!" Cheramy Moore, who is a 
sophomore, stated "The Halloween 
party is the greatest!" Athlete Shawn 
Gates said, "I like the atmosphere, it 
makes me want to bust a move." 

Cutting loose and breaking some dance 
moves was not the only excitement 
going on during Halloween. Marie 
Gordon and her troupe of drama 
students provided entertainment to the 
students. Doth radio and a live guitarist 
was made available for their listening 
pleasure.

Each year EMCC holds an annual 
Homecoming event. This historical 
occasion has been a part of history for 
many years. EMCC held homecoming this 
year on Saturday, October 29. 2005. 

Once a year, students, friends, faculty, 
and alumni come together to reminisce 
about old times and honor each other's 
accomplishments. 

The day started off with honoring the 
alumni. Deflections, led by Mrs. Brenda 
DiMichele, provided music and 
entertainment at the annual banquet held 
in Keyes Currie Coliseum. 



"It was a heart touching moment to see all 
di the alumni back on (Sullivan-Windham Field 
again. They seem to be very happy and 
pleased to be back at their old school," 
says LaVasha Sherman. 

Before the game, a ceremony was held to 
honor Mrs. Virginia Sullivan's new garden, 
located by the stadium entrance. She is the 
wife of the late football coach Bull Sullivan. 

During half-time, the homecoming court took 
their place on the field. All of the young 
ladies looked outstanding, but only one 
could be Homecoming Queen. Audra 
Blackbourn of Oxford, MS succeeded 



over all the others and was crowned 
Homecoming Queen. There was also a 
recognition of N.J. Smith, who received 
Alumnus of the Year, and Charles McComb 
of Starkville, MS who received the 
Distinguished Service Award. 

Even though the EMCC Lions were 
defeated by Northeast Community 
College, everyone was still smiling at the 
end of their wonderful day. This day will 
always give rise to new and old memories 
alike. Homecoming will be remembered 
many years after you leave all di your 
friends, and return as alumni of EMCC.

"Homecoming' week was eventful 
and fun. We had Inflatable Fun_ 
and a pep rally. Qi Homecoming 
Day, 1 really enjoyed singing' with 
Reflections during' the alumni 
luncheon. It is great to be a part

"Inflatable Furuwas very kin. We

You could play as hard as you 
wanted since everything was 
inflatable."

the songs remembered from childhood 
about favorite Christmas characters.

On the first day of December, during a 
program called Celebrate the Arts, the Drama 
Club produced a play known as 'You. The Jury'. 
Meant to be a comedy, the play required 
twelve members of the audience to take part as 
members of a jury while the Drama students 
themselves were members in a courtroom, 
including a judge, prosecution and defense, 
witnesses, the defendant, and even a court 
clerk. 

The setting was a courtroom mock-up, and the 
trial had Willie flood, playing the defendant. 
William Hughes, standing accused of thefl from 
the primary witness for the prosecution, Miss 
Townly, played by brandy Ream. Her comrades 
as witnesses for the prosecution included Emma 
baird. played by Amecia Campbell, whose 
Jamaican and English accent had the audience 
and cast in fits of laughter; 



Charlie Lynch, played by branden Deanes, a 
used car salesman whose act made even the 
toughest critics laugh; and Sergeant Joseph 
Wylie. played by Ken Thomas, whose 
representation of a policeman was amusing in its 
portrayal. 

For the defense was Qebecca Powers, played 
by Colandra Holliday, the defendant's girlfriend, 
Ms. Hughes, played by Tariva Smith, the 
defendant's mother, Ms. Hansen, played by 
Tamar Temple, the manager of a grocery store, 
and Mrs. Matthews, played by Paris Battler, an 
employer of the defendant. 

Drexel, the defense attorney, was played by 
Josh McMullan, and Slater, the prosecutor, was 
represented by Jamus Ellis. McMullan's 
summations were convincing enough for the jury 
to determine the outcome of the play. 



William Hughes was found not guilty of the 
charges set against him in a majority vote by 
twelve members of the audience. 

Judge Vance was portrayed by Adam Davis, 
and the court clerk was played by Jeri Smith. 

The play was, in its entirety, a complete 
success, and those returning to Drama have 
expressed much hope in their next play being 
as successful as this one. 

Marie Gordon and her drama troupe, through 
their use of the audience in the play itself, 
made a memorable bit of history for all those 
who participated and for all those who were 
spectators.

EMCC has many clubs and organizations for students to join. (Some of the clubs 
have been around for years, which has made EMCC's history captivating, but some 
are fairly new to EMCC. 

There are different organizations and clubs for the different interests of the 
students. "I got in drama because since the third grade, I loved pretending to be 
something else," said Colandra Holliday. The clubs and organizations that EMCC 
offer gives students the chance to learn new things, meet new people, and it also 
gives them a way to get involved in activities on and off campus. 

Students participating in club activities learn the role of leadership. They also learn 
how to be responsible individuals. EMCC has clubs and organizations that 
specifically relate to some majors. (Students involved in clubs that relate to their 
major expand their knowledge by participating in activities outside of the 
classroom. 

However, they are not only offered clubs in their major. (Some clubs are designed 
to provide students with inspiration. Students are encouraged to find an 
organization or a club that they find interesting. 

Students enjoy the opportunities presented to them through the clubs and 
organizations EMCC offers. Clubs allow students to go on trips, hold fundraisers, 
and sponsor many fun events. 

Some of the students get the chance to help others when involved in activities 
related to the organizations at EMCC. Organizations help in many worthwhile 
causes; for example, the HOSA club, along with help from PTK members, sponsored 
a bike-a-thon for St. Jude's Hospital. 

Many benefits are offered to students who participate in clubs. Opportunity is 
there for students who want to make themselves a brighter future. EMCC's clubs 
and organizations not only work hard to better EMCC and the student body, but 
they do what is best for the community.

The newspaper and the yearbook are 
responsible for recording the history of 
EMCC. The staff of the newspaper and 
the yearbook work hard to meet 
deadlines and make quality material that 
represents EMCC. The advisor to the 
newspaper and yearbook is Mrs. Kelly 

Atwood. 

The school's newspaper, which is The 
Collegian, puts out a newspaper every 
month. The Collegian records the 
activities that take place on campus and 
also some activities that take place off 
campus in the district. The Collegian 



has representatives from the Columbus 
Air Force Base and the Meridian Naval Air 
(Station; however, the office is based on 
the (Scooba campus. 

The Lion is EMCC's yearbook. The staff 
members of the yearbook work during 
the fall to have the yearbook ready for 
distribution to students and faculty in the 
spring. Each year the yearbook is 
entered into the Mississippi 
Community/Junior College Press 
Association yearbook competition. The 
Lion has always placed in these 
competitions, many times winning 




first place. The staff members of both 
the newspaper and the yearbook must 
meet certain requirements. The students 
must have a reasonably good English 
background and prove that they can be 
reliable when they have to meet 
deadlines. 

Students who are interested in taking an 
active role in the recording of EMCC's 
history should contact Mrs. Atwood about 
joining the newspaper and yearbook 
staff

The Health Care Assistant program began 
the fall semester of 2001 on the <Seooba 
campus and has become a wonderful 
addition to EMCC's history. HCA is a 16 
week course of study designed to 
prepare individuals to become members 
of the health care profession. 

Students who enroll in the health care 
assistant program are encouraged to 
participate in HOSA (Health Occupations 
Students of America) as this allows them 
to gain skills in areas of leadership, 
teamwork, communication, and problem 
solving. Members of HOSA attend the 
spring and fall leadership conference 



in Mississippi and compete in various 
events. EMCC has been very 
successful in previous HOSA 
competitions. HOSA also participates 
in other worthy events such as the St. 
Jude's Bike-a-Thon and the Alzheimer's 
Memory Walk. Students have the 
opportunity to travel to St. Jude 
Hospital in Memphis, TN to tour the 
facility and gain insight into research 
and patient care. 

Through the semester, students learn 
how to work with each other, 
communicate and build interpersonal 
relationships and inevitably, 



iei(ca 



lasting friendships. After graduation, 
students pursue their health care career in 
the fields of nursing, physical therapy, 
sports medicine, and other professions 
while some prefer to enjoy serving their 
community as a certified nursing aide. 

Jennifer Hull, instructor of the program, 
said, "The best payback in the program is 
seeing the students walk in, knowing very 
little about health care, then seeing them 
as they finish the program with vast 
knowledge, skills, and understanding as 
well as personal growth."

The Lion's Pride Marching Band stands out 
in the history of EMCC. The band adds an 
extra amount of spirit to the game. The 
director of the band is Mr. Qobin Gray. "We 
are fortunate this year to have some 
outstanding musicians. This year's group will 
be the foundation of Lion's Pride of the 
future. I am really proud of the progress 
we have made," said Gray. 

Music is the passion of the band members 
and it's obvious when they are out on the 
field performing. The band members 



consider each other family because 
so much time is spent in practice. "I 
love being in the band. It's a 
wonderful experience. I've made 
friends that I will never forget," said 
drum major, Nyesa Edwards. 

The band practices hard during the 
summer. "I like my fellow band 
members," said Heather Fuller. "It's 
like hanging our with your friends 
instead of practice." The band does 
not stop performing once the football 



season is over, playing at basketball games 
and in the spring. This year, alumnus Carey 
Eldridge joins EMCC as jazz band instructor. 

The members of the band not only gain more 
knowledge about music, but they also learn 
responsibility and leadership. "EMCC's band 
has taught me to step up and take 
responsibility. It has taught me that in order 
to lead you must first be able to follow," 
said band member, Erica Coleman. The Lion's 
Pride Marching Band is a joyful part of 
EMCC's history.

From career and technical programs to academics, there are a variety of 
opportunities to provide a history of lifetime memories at EMCC. 

Opportunities provided in the academic programs at EMCC give students who plan 
to transfer to a university the preparation they need to succeed. 

Technical and career programs are also provided for those who would rather take 
that plunge into the work force. The career-technical programs provide the 
experience of real life situations for EMCC students. Students receive the 
knowledge they need to proceed in today's rapidly changing work force. 

EMCC students are provided with the skills they need for their field of study. 
Responsibility, teamwork, dependability, leadership, and punctuality are all qualities 
gained in the programs of choice. By being prepared for the road ahead, students 
will stand out above the crowd. 

"The programs I attend help me build skills in the areas of independence and 
responsibility as well as organization and being prepared in my programs of study. 
The positive environment encourages me to move on to a university. I very much 
appreciate EMCC classes!" said Derek Westbrook 

Regardless of a student's field of study, an EMCC graduate is prepared for the 
future with classes at any EMCC campus or branch. EMCC graduates will have a rich 
history of academic, cultural and social experiences that they can draw from during 
their future years.

Fine Arts and Humanities will go down in EMCC history as an inspiration in helping students with 
their creative abilities. The history of art and humanities has been here long before us and will 
continue to prosper long alter we're gone. The department consists of various courses such as 
English, speech, art, drama, music, and foreign language. 

There has been a history of students at EMCC who preferred to take up these courses. The 
students naturally enjoy the classes, and some say the classes offer a therapeutic outlet. 
Stressed students should Lake these classes to not only provide them an outlet, but to also 
bring out their artistic abilities. 

"Ceramics is a class that is exciting and also fun," said Libby Myers. "We learn a lot but in a tun 
way." 

(Students enjoy writing, drawing, painting, singing, and in drama class, acting out their talents in 
performances. Students enjoy doing what they love while participating in these courses. 

"Art appreciation is a very interesting class, and Terry Cherry makes it an experience like no 
other," said Matt Pierce. 

The careers available in the Fine Arts field consist of writer, editor, musician, orator, instructor, 
translator, singer, and much more. 

Fine Arts and Humanities shapes students into thinkers, writers, and communicators, and these 
inspiring leaders always shape the world's history.

The department of science and mathematics at EMCC lets students explore the world using 
scientific methods. This department consists of science, mathematics, and computer courses. 
(Science and mathematics take a part in the many courses that make up the history of EMCC, and 
computers are a fairly new addition to its academic history. 



Among the many courses offered in the science department are anatomy and physiology, 
organic chemistry, biology, chemistry, microbiology, physical science, physics, and zoology. 

"Learning about biology is hard, but when you have a teacher like Mr. Johnson, he will try his 
best to make it easy for you," said Anthony Watt. "I think it's just something about his class that 
makes you want to learn more about biology." 

Students also participate in EMCC history by taking part in mathematics. The courses are 
algebra, trigonometry, and calculus, math for teachers, finite math, statistics, and developmental 
math. 




"The classes here are really good fun," said John Lawson, a student from (Scotland. "I feel I'm 
learning a lot from them, and the teachers are really helpful." 

Learning more about computers is also applied in EMCC programs. Computer science classes 
include computer programming, computer concepts, and microcomputer concepts. 

The science and mathematics department will direct students in any career they wish to pursue.

The basic knowledge skills are practiced in the (Social (Science department. These courses teach 
students the study of man. his behaviors and his laws. 

"We take a test every other week on each chapter we go over. My major is physical education. 
Everyone takes the classes no matter what their major, so it's a variety ol fields taking place in this 
class. This is my second year at (Scooba and the class is a huge asset to me," said Jay Glass. 

Classes that hold a piece of history range from economics, history, sociology, political science, 
criminology, science di law, education, ethics, philosophy, geography, and linguistics. These classes 
test our abilities to interact with others in our world today. 

"I take notes the majority of the class and learn the history of America. The class is currently learning 
about the French and Indian war. That is mostly what the class is about, you know. History! My major is 
education." said sophomore Cordae Campbell. 

Students who take these classes can major in the fields di elementary and secondary education, 
special education, accounting, coaching, business, social work, health and physical education, social 
science, political science, pre-behavioral law, psychology, sociology, and criminal justice. 

Accounting and government also fall under the realm di social science. This department holds a 
diverse range of classes and majors for its students. 

(Social Science classes will be remembered by students as those that give them the opportunity to 
discuss, debate, and interact with others.

EMCC sports revolve around a lot of hard work and dedication, which brings 
fulfillment to the student body and surrounding area. Many different athletes 
attend EMCC so they can participate in the sport they love. The college has a 
vast mixture of sports to offer the incoming freshmen and sophomores, such as 
football, baseball, Softball, golf, soccer, basketball, and cheerleading. 

Every EMCC athlete plays a special role in the game, which helps our Lions and 
Lady Lions "roar" into victory. While putting hard work and dedication into the 
sport they love, the athletes are also making memories that will become a part of 
EMCC history. 

Freshman Heidi Huffman says, "EMCC has a large variety of sports and academics. 
The teams are made up of players from different locations that work together to 
keep up our Lion pride. I enjoy playing sports at EMCC because I enjoy being 
part of a team and it helps to keep me in shape." 

EMCC athletes travel with pride, just like true lions. Our Lions and Lady Lions 
illustrate a positive face while they are on and even off campus to prove they are 
born to be true winners, no matter the outcome of the game. While the athletes 
of EMCC are playing for the love of the game, they are always willing to put their 
heart and mind into every step they encounter along the path. EMCC athletes will 
always help the student body and surrounding area have a part in history to 
remember forever. 

The EMCC memories that are made by our Lions and Lady Lions are accomplished 
through the excellent organization of our athletic program. Every athlete on 
campus works to perfect his or her performance, adding to the college's already 
rich history of excellent athletics.

With new head Coach Roger Carr, 
the Lions football team is looking 
toward to a winning season. Along 
Coach Carr's side is Al Earnest 
(Offensive Coordinator). Kelby 
Bowman (Defensive Coodinator). Ed 
Square (Defense Back). Scott 
Smouse (Offensive Line), Nick Brett 
(Dunning Back). Tommy Ferrill 
(Defense Line), and Maurice Nelson. 

Coach Carr has 14 years of coaching 
experience at high school, college, 
and professional levels.

"1 feel very good about the boys." 
said Coach Carr. "The kids are 
working hard and their attitudes are 
good. As each game passes we are 
getting more experienced and the 
chemistry of the team is coming 
together. 1 have a good coaching 
staff. They are working hard. They 
have a good chemistry among each 
other." 

The Lions football season looks 
promising in 2005 as head Coach 
Roger Carr and his staff welcomes 



a host of talented recruits to EMCC. 
This was the first summer that the 
football program required potential 
players to enroll in summer school 
and begin training. There are 42 
Freshmen and 12 (Sophomores on the 
team. This indicates that the EMCC 
football team will begin the season in 
better shape and more prepared for 
success on the field, as well as in 
the classroom.

The EMCC Lions have a special ieam 
of talented people helping the nine 
athletic sports on campus. Trainers 
have been a part of EMCC since 
there have been sports. 

Being a trainer takes a lot of 
patience, dedication, and hard work. 
The head trainer for 2005-2005 is 
Jeremiah D. (Jake) Jefcoat. He was a 
trainer in 2004 for the Cleveland 
Browns. "Being an athletic trainer 
here is a challenge that requires me 
to work with imagination to create 
the best environment for athletes' 
health," said Jefcoat. "The whole 
point of my job is to help others at 
all times." 



Athletic Trainer Jefcoat allows 
students who are interested in 
training and learning about the sports 
to help. The trainers are sophomores 
Casey Finch, James Carlos, and 
Christen "(Skittles" Dice. The 
freshman is Lisa McNeil. Christen 
".Skittles" Dice lefl the soccer team 
at the beginning of the year due to 
health problems and has now 
become a trainer. 

The student trainers learn how to 
wrap ankles and knees. They also 
need to know how to make ice bags 
and wrap them on an injured player 
/ho might have a sprain or a cramp. 



Being a trainer is a lot more than 
going out and giving water to the 
players. The trainers have to get up 
early every morning before class, 
and work at lunch and after class. 



It takes a special and dedicated 
person to do the work of a trainer. 
They all work and divide duties 
equally. With their knowledge and 
desire, the EMCC trainers will bring 
players back from injury, which helps 
the athletes to move forward and 
create a history of wins for the 
college.

When you think of cheerleading, you 
think of yelling, smiling, and cheering 
girls for football, basketball, and 
other sporting events. Cheerleading 
is more than just yelling, stunting, and 
making a lot of noise. They are there 
to motivate the EMCC fans and teams 
to victory. 

Cheerleading is about setting an 
example for the rest of the student 
body and young girls everywhere 
whose dream is becoming a 
cheerleader. EMCC has 11 girls to 
support EMCC this year. 



eeneaaen 



The co-captains this year are Sarah 
Prestwich and Eve Darnell. They are 
not only leaders on the field, but 
they are off the field. In everyone's 
mind, that's what captains are 
supposed to do. The cheerleaders 
are led by Danielle McDade, who 
was herself an EMCC cheerleader 
who graduated in 1994. She received 
a Bachelors Degree in Business 
Administration from M<$U in 1996. 
Besides being the cheerleader 
sponsor, she also works in the 
business office at EMCC. 



"I am expecting a really good year with 
some new material to entertain the 
crowd," said McDade. "The girls have 
worked really hard this summer, and I 
believe that it will be evident to all 
when they see them perform. We have 
worked on various stunts that will 
surprise and entertain the fans." 

Just like McDade, these cheerleaders 
will always be a part of EMCC's history.

EMCC head csoccer coach Brian 
Bennett has a new outlook towards 
the soccer program this season. In 
addition to his sixth season as the 
men's head soccer coach, he has 
also taken over the women's soccer 
team. Coach Bennett has very high 
expectations tor the Lions in the 
2005 Fall season and hopes to 
succeed in making memories that will 
become a part of history. 

Not only does Coach Bennett have 
high expectations tor the team, but 
the players expect nothing but the 
best from one another. Goalie Dallas 
Boutwell said, "I've played goalie for 
the past two years and over a two 



year period I've watched the 
&ooba soccer team sp from a 
disreputable team to a respectable 
team. That makes me feel like I've 
accomplished a lot in my college 
career." 

The team consists of eighteen hard 
working players that never want to 
give up. no matter how hot if is 
outside or how many laps they have 
to run. The six sophomores on the 
team that c set great leadership 
examples are Dallas Boutwell, Matt 
Chisolm, Josh Garner, Davis Jordan, 
Alex Pate, and Jason Price. The 
freshmen on the team are Louis 
Alexander, Sean Armstrong, Justin 



Dail. Paul Hawkins, John Lawson, 
Andrew Olsen, Ben Pierce, Casey 
Dicks, 6cott Funk, Roderick Aikens, 
and Steven Baucaum. 

The players were picked from all 
over, which has allowed the men to 
come together and share their own 
personal soccer techniques. When 
walking around campus it is somewhat 
easy to pick out the soccer players 
because, like true Lions, they travel 
in a pride. With the support from 
the community and the EMCC student 
body, the 2005 Lions are expected 
to have a season that will go down in 
history as one "roar" of a season.

The EMCC Lady Lions are expected 
to take a new path in the Fall 2005 
soccer season. The Lady Lions are 
led by head coach Brian Bennett 
and assistant coach Marcille 
McLendon through tough plays and 
fundamentals. 

Coach Bennett has an experienced 
history with soccer and he 
possesses a talent to coach in two 
northern towns that are an hour 
apart. Coach McLendon has been 
involved with several camps 
throughout the years at college and 
high school levels; therefore, she is 
able to show the ladies many 



different techniques. The Lady Lions 
struggled at the beginning of the 
season because they had very few 
players, but overall they came 
together and recruited athletic 
ladies around the campus to have a 
successful season. 



The team consists of 
sophomores that set 



returning 
a great 

example for the talented freshmen. 
The returning sophmores are Katy 
Wallace, Kiista Merrifield, Kimberly 
Cyprian, Christon Dice, and Jeana 
Richardson. The new faces on the 
field mainly consist of freshmen. The 
freshmen are Kristin Hemphill, Heidi 



Huffman, Ashley Johnson. Darris 
Montague, Tina Porter, and Lacey 
Taylor. 

In order lor the ladies to become 
true winners they put forth long, 
hard, and tiring hours together every 
day, hoping one day they will be 
able to grab victory. While being 
assisted by the coaches, other 
players, and the EMCC student 
body, the 2005 Lady Lions are 
making memories that will become a 
part of history forever.

The Men's Basketball team is being 
led to a victorious season this year 
by Head Coach Clay Armstrong. He 
is entering his fourth year as Men's 
Basketball coach at East Mississippi 
Community College. 

Along with Coach Armstrong on the 
coaching staff is assistant coach 
Cadarrall Eddings. 

"I look forward to seeing what this 
team is able to accomplish. We have 
a good mix of sophomores and 



and freshmen. Our success will 
depend on the sophomores stepping 
up into a leadership position and 
taking responsibility for the team. 
Also, the freshmen must realize the 
intensity that it takes to play at this 
level and bring the intensity to every 
practice and game. It both groups 
step up and accept these challenges 
we should be alright," says Coach 
Armstrong. 

Coach Armstrong is coaching a 
tremendous team of thirteen gifted 



young men. 

Mark Ford, a freshman, said, "Being 
an athlete, you expect to win every 
game, so I expect us to go 
undefeated. As long as we play 
together as a team, no one should 
be a challenge." 

The EMCC Men's Basketball team is 
beginning the season as winners, but 
are hoping to end as champions.

The EMCC Women's Basketball team 
is looking forward to a great season 
this /ear under the leadership of 
Head Coach Sharon Thompson. 

With Coach Sharon Thompson 
beginning her fourth year at EMCC 
she takes over the head position of 
coaching the Women's Basketball 
team. Before taking her position, she 
served as the assistant women's 
basketball coach. 

Along Coach Thompson's side are 



assistant coaches Morgan Goodrich 
and Cadarrall Eddings. 

The EMCC Women's Basketball team 
consists of fourteen talented players. 
The girls are looking forward to 
winning every game this year and are 
very motivated to play. 

"We are excited about the upcoming 
season. We have a great group of 
young ladies. Our main focus will be 
to play consistently. We want to play 
pressure defense and look to score 



quickly off our transition offense. If 
we do all of that, we will have a 
successful year," says Head Coach 
Sharon Thompson. 

Endya "Yo Yo" Burton, a sophomore, 
said, "I expect for us to win all o\^ 
the games this year." 

With hard work and dedication, 
there is no reason why the Women's 
Basketball team should not succeed.

The EMCC Lady Lions softball team 
introduces two new coaches to the 
team this season, head coach Dob 
Criddle and assistant coach Marcille 
McLendon. 

Coach Criddle. who comes from an 
experienced background with softball, 
has high expectations for the team and 
is hoping to take the Lady Lions all the 
way in the spring season. Coach 
McLendon, who also expects nothing 
but the best from the women, comes 
from an athletic background and is 
always willing to 



help the women out in any way 
possible. 

"You have to have team unity to help 
add to what East Mississippi softball 
already has," said Coach Criddle. The 
2006 Lady Lions softball team in I he 
spring season is expected to "unit" and 
come together as a whole to take the 
team all the way. 

While the team consists of returning 
sophomores, the women are also 
accompanied on the field by the new 
freshmen faces. The women dedicate 



many long and tiring hours every day di 
the week towards softball. No matter 
how hot it is outside or how much they 
sweat, the women never want to give 
up. 

The Lady Lions had a rough outcome in 
the 2005 season, but the women are 
going to put the past behind them and 
make new memories this season that are 
worth becoming a part of history.

EMCC Lions baseball head coach Bill 
Daldner is entering his 21st year as a 
Lion, and he is hoping that this year 
will have memories that will become a 
part of history. Coach Baldner and 
assistant coach Tony Montgomery are 
taking the 200b spring season down 
a different path. 

During the first semester, the men on 
the team are monitored by the 
coaches, which allows the players to 
have ample opportunites to earn 
playing time during the real games. 



"We always play a lot of players 
early in the season, which usually 
causes us to start slow. We play a 
lot of people so we can be strong 
at the end of the season." said 
Coach Baldner 

The Lions baseball teams consists of 
mainly freshmen, but the the team 
does have strong returning 
sophomores, which will help lead the 
Lions to victory. Coach Baldner said, 
"1 just hope that the sophomores' 
experiences will carry over to the 
fall and 200b season. They all 



showed they could contribute as 
freshmen and now they need to 
work on that. If all goes well, we 
could have a pretty good season." 

Every player on the team puts his 
heart and mind into each step 
performed on the field. Having 
dedicated players on the EMCC 
baseball team and having support 
from the EMCC fans will allow the 
200b baseball team to make 
memories that will last forever.

(Scooba is a campus where everyone knows your name. People here are wonderful 
and quite interesting. East Mississippi is a spectacular college to attend: the grounds 
are beautiful and so are the buildings. The campus is not too small, and not too big. 
It's like a home away from home. EMCC is fortunate to have a variety of students. It 
is a great opportunity for students to experience different people and their 
cultures. 

The faculty and staff here are kind and respectful to the student body. They really 
care for the students. Mrs. brenda DiMiehele has been teaching at EMCC for 
thirty-one years. The students and some faculty members know her as Mrs. D. She is 
loved and admired for her outstanding and creative work on her annual "Frosty 
Follies" event. Roth younger and older people look forward to the show every 
year. 

Many students that come to East Mississippi find it interesting and exciting to 
participate in Frosty Follies. (Students in elementary schools come to see the shows, 
and then, once they enter EMCC, become a part of the show themselves. 
Unfortunately, this is Mrs. D's last year here, (She will truly be missed and 
remembered. 

Mrs. D is just one of the many wonderful people here. There are plenty oi' teachers, 
deans, and staff members that dedicate their lives to educating students. East 
Mississippi Community College is History in the Making. 

Many students choose EMCC because it's close to home and is afforable. Once 
they attend any EMCC location, they realize it is a great choice. 

"1 like East Mississippi Community College because it is close to home and it is a 
great foundation for my continued education at a senior university," said student 
Lakeisha Maxer. 

(Student Jasma Lewis said, "East Mississippi is a well founded organization. It 
provides me with the knowledge of mind and the image that I can do anything. 1 find 
this school to be an outstanding community college."

GLQM&& President ci 3r. G£ick Qfoung- 

Dr. Young is serving his second year as president of the college, 
but his role in the success of EMCC has been extensive. Dr. 
Young has worked for the college for more than 20 years and 
during most of that time, served as vice president of the Golden 
Triangle campus. The first community college distance learning lab in 
the state of Mississippi began at the Golden Triangle campus 
under Dr. Young. For years, both campuses oi' EMCC have grown 
tremendously in enrollment and through construction of new 
buildings. Dr. Young believes that the success of a college is 
connected to the success of its community and strives to help the 
economic development of not only the EMCC district, but also the 
state of Mississippi. He was instrumental in establishing the Center 
for Manufacturing Technology Excellence, which is used to enhance 
workforce training and economic development. As president. Dr. 
Young has worked to meet the needs of the students, faculty, staff 
and community by establishing a new administration, a women's 
honors dorm, live web coverage of sporting events, a renovated 
cafeteria, grant-sponsored programs, and a new vrsual identity for 
the college.

Hurricane Katrina. The name will be remembered for all Lime. 
The Mississippi Gulf Coast was virtually wiped away. New 
Orleans was flooded. Hundreds upon hundreds of people 
died or were unaccounted for, and many still are unaccounted 
for at the time of this writing. 

Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Mississippi on August 29, 
2005. The college campuses were closed that day. The 
Hurricane wreaked destruction throughout south and central 
Mississippi, gradually weakening the further north it traveled. 
The city of Meridian had a curfew for many days after the 
hurricane, as officials tried to restore power. The Meridian 
Naval Air Station Extension of EMCC was closed for the week 
as the base was used to house evacuees from the coast. 

EMCC staff member Kelly Atwood, who i=s from Jones County, 
had her family members stay with her on campus for a week 
while they searched for a generator to purchase. 



"I couldn't reach my family because all the phones were down, 
so I drove down the one-lane interstate to see if they were 
okay," Atwood said. "I've never seen such devastation in my life, 
and 1 hope 1 never will again." 

The (Scooba Campus was closed for the week due to power 
lines that were torn down and entangled in trees. A handful o\~ 
resident students had remained on campus to weather the 
storm, but left after the hurricane passed since the cafeteria 
could not open without electricity. The (Scooba Campus 
students had to make up the lost week of classes by attending 
classes into the Christmas holiday and taking exams late, 
including on a Saturday. The Golden Triangle Campus and 
Columbus Air Force Base Extension were able to open after the 
Hurricane passed. 

Although EMCC was able to bounce back quickly, some other 
colleges are still trying to rebuild.

EMCC recorded a new part of history this November. The 
Society of Exceptional Students (SES) sponsored EMCC's first 
bachelor and bachelorette auction. The night was beautifully 
planned by SES assistants of the TQIO staff. Members on the 
committee for this event included Britanny Eichelberger, 
Megan Lewis, and Angela Miller. 

"The auction was very fun and thrilling," said Bobby Burrell. 

Eight hundred and thirty eseven dollars was raised, and all 
proceeds went to the American Cancer Society. 



Steven James Jr.. Alex Altman, Dillie Watson, Willie Jones, 
Christian Trussell, Sed Locke, Steven Black, Roderick 
Aikens, Tierre Wallace, Reginald Dancy, and Bryant 
Thompson. 



Roderick Aikens said, "1 th 
good way to raise money."

Female participants included Crystal Lawston, Shikima Brown, 
Brittany Eichelberger. Kyla Skinner, Shetina Stewart, Shirline

"It was a lot di fun. The kids behaved well and a lot oS. money 
was raised for a good cause," said TRIO director Dr. Baker. 



"The auction was so much fun. It was nice and clean fan; 1 
would do it all over again," said Shetina Stewart. 



Male participants were Jamus Ellis, Joshua Scott, Marquez 
Branson, Tyyon Jefferson, George Graham, 



This is part of EMCC's history many will remember.
